I don’t think I have ever visited a city as picture perfect as Budapest. Everywhere you walk, every street you turn down, something beautiful sits waiting for you.
I am a huge lover of photography and making my boyfriend take Instagram pictures for me, so I thought I would share with you some of my favourite photo spots in Budapest.
1. Fisherman’s Bastion
Built in the 19th century, the Fisherman’s Bastion looks like a real life fairy-tale. It’s one of the most popular attractions in Budapest so expect lots of crowds if you go during peak times.
It is free to walk around but there is a small fee to go to the upper towers, which I recommend paying as it has the best views of the city and it’s less busy.
If I come back to Budapest again one day, I’d love to come here at sunrise or sunset.
2. Széchenyi Thermal Bath’s
Budapest is famous for its bath houses so I went to the biggest of them all, The Széchenyi Thermal Bath’s.
They’re not only a nice place to relax but perfect for a nice photo or two (if you don’t mind being in your costume).
3. Vajdahunyad Castle
This stunning castle sits in the City Park, not too far away from the Széchenyi Thermal Bath’s. It’s historic Romanesque architecture makes the perfect backdrop for a photo.
It was unfortunately quite overcast and cloudy when I visited but I stuck it out and hired a boat on the lake right next to it.
I definitely felt like I was in a Harry Potter film, rowing off to Hogwarts for the first time.
4. The back streets on the Buda side
About a 5/10 minute walk from the Fisherman’s Bastion you will find charming coloured houses with quaint cobbled streets, my favourite kind for a quick photo or two.
5. The Hungarian Parliament Building
The Neo-gothic facade of this building is mesmerizing, I could spend ages just looking at it.
I walked all the way from Buda side to get here (which is quite far) so my legs where killing me by the time I got here.
You can pay for a tour of the inside but I was happy just to admire the exterior.
I hope you liked this post! There is honestly so many beautiful things to see in Budapest, these are just a few I was lucky enough to visit.
Bye for now
